by e-mail, it is completely wrong. the u.s. postal service is not the victim of e-mail and text messages. it is the victim of alec and the koch brothers. why, you ask? quite simple, really. the usps is the number one employer of unionized labor in the united states and provides an affordable universal service that a private company could and would charge us all much, much more for. two huge no-nos for the right wing. the reason the right wing crafted the legislation to destroy the postal service. we're joined now by nationally and internationally syndicated radio host the brilliant thom hartmann who wrote an incredible piece about this very subject for truth out.org called the usps media hashtag fail. >> great to be with you. >> john: please complain what the postal accountability enhancement act is and what its effects have been. >> well, you know, there were some reasonable and some good changes in that act which is -- as far as i can tell, how it got out of the house government oversight committee henry waxman and other democrats basically signing of on it. it was passed by a

seeking jobs in the u.s., but to criminals who want to murder, rape and kidnapping. lone criminals, these are the perils we are sure to face not just maybe, it's not paranoia to buy a gun, it's survival. this morning msnbc's joe scarborough described the op-ed as being laced with racial overtones. >> the republican party, if they were smart, their looters today would condemn it. but they're not smart, they're scared, they're going to get hammered in future elections if they allow this clown to continue to lead them around by their nose. they're shameful, they need to be leaders. >> all of this comes as gun control advocates rally again in connecticut to encourage lawmakers there to enact stricter gun laws. joining me now, democratic strategist david goodfriend and rachel smoke. first up, wayne la pierre refers to hurricane sandy under hellish conditions. new york observer says silver lining sandy, still no murders after the superstorm. regarding border security, according to huffington post, 2010 report said that the u.s. mexican border is among the safe es in the u.s. so there's a

for secretary of state, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. that's what is written there. for the president, is this about taking care of an old friend or trying to make up for rice? >> actually, i think it's about choosing what he believes is the best person for the job and sticking by him, which i think is admirable. look, the reality here is this is about politics. this is not about benghazi. if it was about benghazi, you could have held up john kerry. they didn't. this is something that exists between republicans and senator hagel because he dared questioned them about the iraq war. so that i think is the are reality that we're facing. i think the problem with the republicans is, be how much longer can they continue to play these games on these issues and think it's not going to hurt them? in fact, it already has. they are becoming a caricature of a political party because when you admit to the american people it's not about substance, it's about a 7-year-old issue that you have a problem with, a personal issue, that doesn't necessarily create a lot of confidence that your criticisms ar

mondale, democrat of minnesota. mr. mondale entered the u.s. senate at the beginning of our national war on poverty under lbj. senator mondale outlasted president johnson in office, but he kept working on that basic idea, of using public policy to help out the least well off among us. by 1971 he succeeded in getting passed with big bipartisan support a bill that would have created a daycare system essentially in this country. universal preschool for american kids. the tuition was on a sliding scale so everybody could afford it. senator mondale got his bill passed and it went to the guy who was president by then. it went to richard nixon. and richard nixon vetoed it even though it passed with lots of republican votes. president nixon said the idea of preschool for everyone had quote, family-weakening implications. he said quote, the child development envisioned in this legislation would be truly a long leap into the dark for the united states government and the american people. a long leap into the dark. 40 years after president nixon said no to preschool for all american kids with the we

that the u.s. government can order the killing of american citizens if they are believed to be senior operational leaders of al-qaeda or an associated force -- here's the key line -- even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the united states. so that policy is that we believe justice department is saying it is perfectly legal to use drones, not just to go out and kill people that we think might some day plan an attack against the united states who are not friendly to the united states. but also to kill americans anywhere on the planet whom we think are traitors or may some day, plan something against the united states even if there is no evidence that they are now engaged in an active plot. raises the whole question about drone warfare. i'm torn about it because it's a different kind of warfare. i mean, certainly, i would like to know what you think about this. 1-866-55-press. the problem i believe is we've got this technology. we are using it. we are using it more than anybody has ever used it before. i mean i forget how many -- you kno
state legislature scott brown won that u.s. senate seat and found himself going to washington. now scott brown did not stay there long. he ended up serving only a partial term in ted kennedy's seat. when he had to defend that seat in this last election in november, he lost the seat as an incumbent by eight points. scott brown and herman cain were both announced this week as the latest contributors on the fox news channel. so that is what scott brown will be doing now with herman cain instead of legislating. while elizabeth warren has that seat now in washington. elizabeth warren made her debut this week at the banking committee that wall street was so eager to keep her from joining. her first round of questioning, she was questioning some bank regulators, demanding to know why no wall street banks ever end up on trial when they break the law. that round of questioning has already become as much as a viral sensation as might be possible for a round of banking committee questioning. spontaneously, i should note in the moment when she was asking those questions of the bank regulators about

for the defense industry? >> it's already terrible -- it's not just the defense industry, it's the u.s. economy which has contracted because of the anticipated loss of defense in aerospace jobs. leon panetta was confirmed 100-0. let me repeat that. 100-0. and he actually has a copy of the congressional record signed by 100 senators. i told him he ought to sell it on ebay and get rich. this hasn't happened in years, and it sure isn't going to happen with chuck hagel whom we can discuss. but the whole idea that in this reckless fashion, congress is not stopping this move to sequester of the defense or the nondefense budget just boggles my mind. i haven't been there in two years, but the people who are there are shaking their heads. let me say this. i was in munich recently for the security conference, my 11th time with john mccain, lindsey graham and a on the of others. the europeans who have economic structural problems are trying to increase their defense capability and shaking their heads at us and looking at the fact that we don't have serious problems, but we're manufacturing these economic

a little research. you look at u.s. military spending from 1988 to 2011, and it has gone up in a big way. you look at the percentage of the u.s. military spending compared to the rest of the world. it is, you know, in the last 20 years, we've seen record spending on defense. now, that is due in some part to the fact that we had a war in iraq. we have ongoing military engagement in afghanistan. that costs money, but where do you think democrats need to be. >> on this issue of sequester? >> where democrats have to be is in intelligent reduction in defense spending. the sequester is not intelligent reduction. one of the benefits, i think, of chuck hagel as secretary of defense is he does know and i think will have the willingness to go in there and find the places that are real fat. find the weapons systems that don't work. find the pad in the things, find the excessive spending on things that we don't need, and cut those rather than cutting troop deployments or things like that. >> i think that argument is valid up to a point. the same thing you can say about domestic spending. there's a c

hearing was it as informative as the one following the nine u.s. embassies consulate attacks hash tag never mind. there's just no context. nine u.s. embassies in consulate attacked during bush. if you want to go back further into context in an 18-month period when reagan was president, three separate u.s. embassies or barracks were attacked in beirut. over 300 americans were killed. not just the marines but others. >> stephanie: right. >> 18 months. after the third one reagan campaigned in iowa the next day. reporters asked him did you think about not campaigning today. he said no. we need to campaign today. so you know, the double standard throughout history is so glaring and there were no hearings, of course, during the bush years when embassies and consulates were attacked. >> most upset about benghazi are the people who voted for -- for embassy security. >> and -- the republican party -- everyone forgets about this now. that try to block the 9-11 commission investigation. dick cheney was on the phone with daschle, with democrats saying this investigation is not going to happen. >>
